About Us · The Unfunded List

Unfunded List

Est. 2015

Unfunded List, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit whose charitable mission is to educate the public about philanthropy. Twice a year we provide rigorous feedback to unfunded proposals. We also write articles about grant-making and the nonprofit sector and interview philanthropists for our podcast. We host Unfunded University events to provide in person education to our applicants and host an annual Evaluator Summit for our evaluation committee. At Unfunded List we believe that great ideas deserve great feedback and the funding they need too succeed.
